Acting Studio

Acting classes create well-rounded young actors. By working on scene study skills, building relationships with their fellow actors, and channeling their imagination, actors build confidence and gain the tools they need to make a script their own. Taught by highly trained actors and directors, our acting classes challenge students in a fun and supportive atmosphere!

When students study acting, they will:

  • Develop Teamwork
  • Inspire Self-Confidence
  • Increase Physical Activity
  • Foster Memorization Skills
  • Improve Public Speaking

Acting Studio Placement

Please register for Acting I or II based on where you think you belong. The first class will be used for placement. If a student needs to move, the switch will be made prior to the second class.

Please register for either Acting I or Acting II based on where you think you belong. The first class date will be used as a placement. If the student needs to be moved to the other level, the switch will be made prior to the second class week.

Dance Studio

Our focus is on technical training for theatrical performances and professional dance training. A dedicated faculty exemplifying strong faith values mentors each student to assist in achieving his or her goals. Through self-discipline and dedication each student will gain knowledge and skills in many disciplines of dance and styles as well as a heightened self-esteem and passion for dance.

Dance Studio Placement

First Act Dance Studio wants every dance student to excel in dance. Students should be challenged without feeling overwhelmed. Students taking a level they are not ready for can hinder growth in dance, cause injury and diminish motivation and confidence. All Students in Level II and above will need to be placed in the proper class. If you did not attend a placement session in the spring, please enroll in the class level that you believe that you will be most successful in – this does not guarantee your individual placement. The first two weeks of class are also an opportunity for placement. Changes and movement between classes may be made in the best interest of the individual student.
